5. Discounts for disabled people

Disabled band reduction scheme

This scheme makes sure disabled people don’t pay more Council Tax if they need:

  • a bigger property
  • to adapt their home because of their disability

The property must be the main home of at least 1 disabled person. They can be an adult or a child and don’t have to be responsible for paying the Council Tax.

The property must have 1 or more of:

  • an extra bathroom, kitchen or other room for the disabled person
  • extra space inside the property for using a wheelchair

Other Council Tax reductions

People who are severely mentally impaired and some live-in carers are exempt when working out Council Tax.

You can apply for a Council Tax discount from your local council.
